New Studio and Interview on START

During the past two weeks, we have been busy sprucing up the studio…and by that we mean changing rooms, laying floors, hanging studio lights, and sound proofing.  We have switched recording systems as well so that will pay off in better sound quality and editing.  Be sure to check out our interview with Nick with START (Start Talking and Recording Today).

Samsung’s Gear 2 & Gear 2 Neo

Wearable technology is the emerging sector of the tech industry.  Samsung releases their Gear smartwatch a bit too early, late fall of 2013, and didn’t fall into the graces of consumers due to the limited options, low battery life, and high price point.  Samsung re-engineered and presented Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, introducing more health and fitness based functions and integrations.  We will see if this sticks with consumers the second time around.

Windows 8.1 and Licensing

It has been clear that desktop users have yet to embrace Windows 8 as a usable professional or personal platform.  Windows 8 was truly designed for the mobile and tablet market and that’s where it has refocused its attention by dropping the licensing fee, for select machines, by 70 percent.  Microsoft understands that Chromebooks have a dominant position in the market because of low-cost and/or open-source operating systems and need to reintroduce Windows 8 and 8.1 to the industry.
